Roaming the byways of literature

For the love of haiku – rouge flower

Once again Carpe Diem has given us a challenge and a lead – this time to the understanding of the simplicity of a thing’s true nature.

I hesitate to try this challenge with the example of haiku master Chiyo-ni in front of me, but here goes:

dew on the daisy,

dew on the rouge flower, who

can tell them apart?

  1. Very nice take on this one 🙂


  2. Hi e a m harris, I nominated you for a liebster blog award. See my latest post if you’re interested in following up. Gary, http://www.shakemyheadhollow.com


    • Thank you so much for the nomination. I am greatly honoured. It is an award that requires a lot of thought so it’ll be a while before I can do anything about it. Congratulations to you on your nomination. You deserve it for your lovely blog.

    Perhaps it is for the discerning
    Or maybe just pretense



    • Thank you so much for the poetic comment. I think some readers will see it as discerning and others as pretence. I love the way the same piece of writing rings different bells for different readers.


  4. Awesome … I love how you took up the challenge to write a haiku inspired by Chiyo-Ni.

  5. Hesitate no more!! You captured the soul of Chiyo-Ni with your own unique spin!
